It’s Your Moment in History
Special Events at the Ford Piquette
Create a one of a kind event.
Let the Ford Avenue Piquette Plant provide
your event with a timeless backdrop—an
urban industrial setting steeped in the past
where guests can walk the same floors a
young Henry Ford walked, sit in the driver’s
seat of a Model T, and mingle where an
invention that would forever change the world
was born. It’s a setting that is signature Detroit
and can be found nowhere else.

Our Story. The Ford Avenue Piquette Plant was built in 1904 by the
fledgling Ford Motor Company. It was here that Henry Ford
would produce several car models- including his most famous
automobile- the Model T. Once outside the plant’s walls,
the Model T started a revolution that would put the world on
wheels. When demand for the Model T exceeded the plant’s
capabilities, Ford moved production over to the Highland Park
Plant. The Piquette Avenue Plant was bought by Studebaker
and then later used as a warehouse until it fell into almost total
disuse in the 1990s- gradually becoming just another industrial
building succumbing to the elements. In 2000, the Plant was
saved through the work of members of the Henry Ford Heritage
Association. It is now a National Historic Landmark that
operates as a museum and learning center.
